Jefferson Township Middle School has partnered with the New Jersey Department of Education, Office of Special Education and The Boggs Center at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School to implement the positive behavior support in Schools (PBSIS) initiative.

The goals of this initiative are to:

• Promote a positive climate.

• Be more proactive in our actions and decision making for behavior issues.

• Increase consistency in what we expect from students and how we communicate those


• Be more constructive in the types of interventions we are using with students who engage in repeated problem behaviors.

The methods for achieving these goals will involve positive reinforcements that create an environment in which the student can learn responsible behavior and achieve academic success. We provide the students with golden tickets called RAPPERS (respectful, accountable, positive people earning rewards) when they meet our behavioral expectations of being respectful, accountable, or positive. The students can place their rappers in the bin in the lunch room for a chance to win a weekly raffle. Prizes include gift cards, time in the Wii game lounge, school supplies, coupons for café cash, and much more. 

We are asking local businesses and our parents to support the PBSIS initiative at Jefferson Township  Middle School by providing donations/gifts which will be used as incentives and positive  reinforcement for students. It is an excellent opportunity for our school, its parents and the  community to work together to help our students be successful and achieve their full potential. We hope you will join us in this effort.
